(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)
My theme for 2020 is “Plant Seeds”
Right now I am:
- Living in Barcelona, running regularly in the Collserola National Park, heading to the David Lloyd gym, playing tennis (not as often as I would like)
- Father to a 14 and 5 year old wonderful daughters
- YouTubing – committed to produce one video every week (been at it for over 4 years), published to YouTube on Tuesdays.
- Teaching Leadership Communications Programs to EMBA and GEMBA courses at IESE Business School in Barcelona, Madrid and New York; at IEEM in Montevideo.
- Leading the Development of Vistage in Spain; identifying great experienced CEOs who can act as mentors, guides and coaches to today’s CEOs of €5M+ businesses.
- Member of Entrepreneurs Organisation, part of an amazing forum group that has been meeting continually for 13 years, faculty on EO Global Leadership Academy and regular speaker at EO chapter events; leading the Barcelona EO mentorship program.
- Learning committee for Circulo Ecuestre, helping bring interesting speakers to share their wisdom with the members.
- Mentoring 6 entrepreneurs; teaching leadership and life to schools, youth groups, associations.
What I’m Putting into Practice
- Not taking things personally – being careful to observe when I put unarticulated expectations onto someone else’s behaviour and then feeling let down if they don’t “guess” my expectations; making explicit my expectations in important relationships.
- No Rush – removing anything and everything from my life that generates a feeling of being in a rush, not having enough time, rushing to finish so I can get to the next thing…
- Listen to learn, not to respond – just like it says…
